He returned


Clouds cleared the sky to blue today
Ocean waves gently swept at the beach.
An egg cracked and a chick came life,
It ran over to its mother to get warm
The red roses opened up to the sunlight
They looked so beautiful to be natural
Rains fell on a drying infant mango tree

A long lost son came back home today;
They have awaited his return for years.
A banquet was prepared long before now
For the father never lost hope of his return,
He is running from what he had become
Running, back home where surely love lasts,
A promise the father made to all his sons
Everlasting, endless love

The doors opened wide to let him in;
Servants blessed him with new clothing.
Songs of joy and happiness were sung,
Sung by hearts that dwelled in the house,
Victory had been gotten, the war won.
The son, father shared a cup of pure wine.
